The analysis of anions cations balance in rainwater samples, were carried out in the Department of Soil Science and Agricultural Chemistry Laboratory at the Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi during 2015. The rainwater samples of three different location viz. Lanka, Mirzamurad and Babatpur places of BHU, Varanasi, which are relatively free from industrial pollution were examined during south-west monsoon period (July to September) in Varanasi using standaralize selection and analytical methods for evaluation of anions cations balance of rainwater. It was revealed from the Tables 1-3 that the total mineralization varied from 53.65 to 171.38 mg L-1 in Lanka, 25.49 to 153.55 mg L-1 in Mirzamurad and 73.32 to 286 mg L-1 in Babatpur, respectively. In an average total mineralization was highest in Babatpur followed by Lanka and Mirzamurad.
